    This edited volume explores and evaluates the roles of corruption in post-conflict peacebuilding. The problem of corruption has become increasingly important in war to peace transitions, eroding confidence in new democratic institutions, undermining economic development, diverting scarce public resources, and reducing the delivery of vital social services. The Prince (Italian: Il Principe [il ˈprintʃipe], Latin: De Principatibus) is a 16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò his correspondence, a version appears to have been distributed in , using a Latin title, De Principatibus (Of Principalities). However, the printed version was not published until , five years after.

    The Cambridge Companion to Machiavelli brings together sixteen original essays by leading experts, covering his life, his career in Florentine government, his reaction to the dramatic changes that affected Florence and Italy in his lifetime, and the most prominent themes of his thought, including the founding, evolution, and corruption of republics and principalities, class conflict, liberty, arms, religion, ethics, rhetoric, gender, and the Renaissance dialogue . The downfall of the Medici in Florence occurred in , in which year Machiavelli entered the public service. During his official career Florence was free under the government of a Republic, which lasted until , when the Medici returned to power, and Machiavelli lost his office.

    In this article we examine the relationship between Machiavelli’s thought and the notion of corruption, starting from the multiple meanings thereof. It appears in the first instance that the Florentine Secretary proposes a definition rather “civic”. Corruption, understood as ‘‘abuse of public office for private gain’’ is a persistent feature in human societies throughout time and space. Contemporaneous corruption scandals not only occur in developing countries such as Nigeria, India, and China where corruption is regarded.
